The politicians taking part in the debate
The Tories' three-point lead is the lowest of the campaign so far, while Labour’s 39 per cent is the party’s highest poll result since February 2014, with the current polling leading to a hung parliament.
In a hung parliament, there is no overall control and no party can pass laws without support from other parties.
Two or more parties can come together to form a coalition government if they have a majority of seats between them.
Alternatively, the leading party might decide to try to govern with a minority of seats in the House of Commons.
If a party formed a minority government then it would risk defeat on important votes, which could, in turn, spark fresh elections.
